Firm is looking at locations

WAITROSE is eyeing up locations in Swindon for its next store.

The upmarket supermarket said it is looking at opportunities in the area and is keen to open more stores in Wiltshire.

The firm has remained tight-lipped about a possible location for the shop, but rumours it will go to the old college site in Regent Circus have been squashed.

Coun Mike Bawden (Con, Old Town & Lawns) said there was a clear need for Waitrose in Swindon because residents from the town are travelling to Marlborough and Cirencester to shop there.

He said: “People want the choice provided by Waitrose – a lot of people from the town drive to Marlborough and Cirencester to get that.

“If we have one in Swindon, that will keep the spending in the town.

“I am delighted that Waitrose is looking seriously at Swindon. It would provide choice for residents and stop them going elsewhere.”

The retailer, which is owned by John Lewis, plans to open 300 convenience stores in the UK in the next 10 years. It has not confirmed what type of store it is considering opening in Swindon or whereabouts.

A Waitrose spokesman said: “It is always pleasing to hear the shopping experience we deliver to our customers is in demand and Swindon is definitely an area we are interested in coming to.

“Our two existing stores in Wiltshire – at Marlborough and Salisbury – have been extremely successful and with a number of producers from the region supplying our shops, we are naturally keen to increase our presence here. We are currently assessing opportunities in the area and continue to welcome approaches for potential sites.”

Andrew Fisher, of Ashfield Land, the developers of the old Swindon College site, said long and detailed discussions had taken place between the firm and Waitrose, but no deal had been made.

He said: “I would say it’s unlikely they will come here. Unfortunately, we were not able to persuade them.”

Mr Fisher said a deal to bring another supermarket to the site was very near completion.

The revelation comes after Aldi was granted planning permission for a superstore in Drove Road last week.

Lidl has also nearly finished building a store in West Swindon, which will create up to 40 jobs.

THE possibility of a Waitrose in Swindon has whetted the appetites of residents.

Alan Richards, 52, of Victoria Road said: “I would definitely use Waitrose to shop in as I really like the food.”

Sally Miller, a full time mother, from Old Town, said: “I don’t really mind, it doesn’t really affect me as I normally do big food shops in Tesco, “But it will still be nice to have the option of Waitrose food as it’s good quality and they’ve got a good selection.”

Payroll administrator Liana Edwards said she wouldn’t use Waitrose to do basic shopping. “But it would be nice to have an alternative to the Co-op,” she said.

Lamis Khourg, a 40-year-old teacher, said: “It’ll be nice to have a supermarket like Waitrose in Swindon.”

Waitrose in Swindon will be a great addition to M&S already at the Orbital.
I just hope that Waitrose goes to the Orbital as well to reinforce the orbital as the main shopping mall (with FREE PARKING) in Swindon, well served by the A419 and its new bypass.
Put Swindon on the map! concentrate the good shops at the Orbital please!

Blimey, are you on commission from the Orbital park or do you just live near there?

Waitrose will be a welcome addition to Swindon - and not before time.

If ever there was a comment that demonstrated the abject failure of planning policy in Swindon, it is the previous comment posted by politicrat. The very idea that anyone should be calling for high end retail development to be concentrated on a site 5 miles from the centre of town is a damning indictment of planning policy and the neglect of the centre.

North Swindon has no train station or any other infrastructure of note. If councillors are serious about putting a heart back in to Swindon, they will (I hope) pay little attention to calls to exacerbate the 'doughnut effect' trend that has plagued the town for decades.

At least the football club is serious about staying in the centre of town. I hope others will follow.

I am bound to get loads of flack for asking this, but why does Swindon need a Waitrose. They only sell own brand items and are much more expensive than other supermarkets.

How many people do their weekly shop there, or just pop in and buy the odd occassional nice thing as a treat?

I only ask to gauge opinion and offer a fair discussion about Waitrose.

I also think that it would fit rather well into the Orbital Park.

There's a massive Woolworth store going spare in Regent Street. That would get people moving into the town centre rather then being car obsessed and driving up to the Orbital and would spur on the long awaited regeneration. Waitrose in Marlborough is on the high street, so why not in Swindon?

Waitrose sell all sorts of brands, not just their own. Are you thinking of M&S?

Waitrose is an excellent store. What Swindon needs is more up-market stores. Aldi and Lidl have their place, as does the likes of Buyology, and the Poundstretcher style stores, but Swindon is becoming overrun with this type of 'bargain basement' store.

the M&S at Orbital is excellently placed. I would never have travelled into town to shop at the M&S there, and the fact that thousands of other people also shop there clearly means that there is a market for a Waitrose in Swindon.

And if those who travel to other towns to shop at Waitrose switch to Swindon then surely this is ecologically better too.

simple - Marlborough is small town with a thriving and interesting high Street.

Swindon is a large town with a centre like a 3rd World bombed-out rubbish tip.

So why not try to make a change for the better then (rather than making the problem worse)? The town centre is hopelessly under-invested...I think we agree on that much. The vicious circle, where the town centre is overlooked because it is so dire - and consequently then becomes even more dire - is one that has to be broken.

Let's get Waitrose in the centre of town. And a redeveloped County Ground. Then use these developments as an anchor to attract further development in town. I find it depressing that there are so many out there who want to settle for the status quo.

Or come to that ! How about some quality furniture shops so that we can at least buy a dining room table to eat all of this food from the supermarkets off of .

Its been a whille since I have been in Waitrose!!

But seriously, do people really travel from Swindon to Cirencester or Marlborough to do their weekly shop? Don't Asda, Tesco, Sainsburys, Morrision etc etc sell what people need at cheaper prices?

However I do agree with the comments about the number of bargain and discount stores in Swindon town centre. Along with the number of charity furniture shops etc etc. I even see a Pawn Broker has secured a prime location - sign of the times.

I can't imagine why Waitrose would consider locating their store in the shabby rundown half closed toilet of a town centre that we have. Why? few people other than immigrants shop there (witness all the pound and charity shops), the parking is expensive and the one way system a joke. Maybe the orbital shopping centre would be a better idea, free parking, nice enviroment and easy to access from Swindon and beyond. It'll save me a trip to Cirencester once a month anyway.

I have to agree with PaulD, how can we alone get the town redeveloped when the council will not pay out?? I work in the centre of town and in the last 2 weeks i have seen about 20 kids drug dealing in the multi story and found myself dodging the used needles on the stairwell of the same carpark...bearing in mind I had reported this! and also i have seen workmen dig up the town centre for this ridiculous water feature (which will be taken down in a year or so)and fill it in with TARMAC....it looks a right mess! If I came to swindon on the train....the minute I walked out that station and saw what greeted me....i would turn on my heels and get the hell out!!!!

Any investment in Swindon should be welcomed, whether it's hotels or supermarkets. It's a shame some of the correspendants on here do not share the same enthusiasm for the town as these businesses do.
No town can afford large scale overhauls, so all steps however small should be welcomed.
BUT, the Orbital Centre is full and car parking overflowing. The regeneration of the town centre is vital.
Swindon needs a decent attraction; snow dome, music venue?
Canal Walk need finishing urgently with decent paving, seating and open area. I agree with The Real Bev it looks an eyesore at the moment.
Above all, Swindon needs some action, not airy fairy plans nor buckets of crticism!

Waitrose will never go to the Orbital. When it was built, the leases on all current and future units restricted food sales so that Asda would go there.
I also believe that Wamart own a 50% stake in the Orbital (although I could be wrong on that bit).
Just check out the M&S - hardly brimming with food aisles. That was a condition of M&S opening.

Waitrose would be a welcome addition to the fragmented shopping experience here in Swindon. But with the slow demise in the centre of town and a lack of convenient free of charge parking it is unlikely it will be situated there. Unfortunately we are paying for any sense of a cohesive planning concept and until and unless the town centre is regenerated to bring the facilities together the centre will actually slowly wither on the vine. With the loss of Woolworths and another like M & S moving out it will not be long before this happens. Why on earth would anyone from outside the town from say Hungerford want to come here to shop?

What is the news re the empty former somerfield in Gorse Hill? It is such an eyesore, it really lowers the tone of the entire area.

I heard Morrisons bought it but are delaying its development until they hear the outcome of their planning application for a larger store.

Someone (MPs??) should be pushing for Morrisons to use it or lose it! It needs reopening to boost the area once more.

A waitrose in Swindon would be nice, but would it work? I've always thought most people around Swindon go to the cheaper supermarkets. My main concern is that none of these new stores force Asda to close in West Swindon, as myself and several others rely on that. I'm only hoping that the new Lidl store doesn't give them too much competition, as I don't intend to do my future shopping there.
